First, figure out which part of your yard you’d like to draw the most attention to. Do you have a large tree that will be your focal point? Or will the exterior of your home be the main attraction?
Before hanging any lights, test each set so you know they will work. (The last thing you want is to go to the trouble of hanging your lights, only to find they don’t work!)
Make the hanging process easier by attaching light clips or using cable ties to ensure the lights are running in the same direction.
It’s time to get creative with D.I.Y. Christmas decorations. From candy canes made from pool noodles, to illuminated ‘snowballs’ and light trees made from spiral obelisks, you can add your own personal touches to your festive front yard.
